Rogers Broadcasting is actively seeking Alberta-based original unscripted factual series for broadcast on Citytv and our Specialty services. Creatively, concepts should feature local stories that have relevance to a national audience, with an emphasis on exploring exciting ideas and worlds that have not been exposed on television. Examples of shows currently airing on our services that achieve this include “Oil Change”, a fantastic doc series featuring unprecedented access to the Edmonton Oilers, and “The Quon Dynasty”, which follows the wildly entertaining Quon family, restaurateurs in Edmonton, Alberta. Rogers will consider both half hour and one hour formats.
Rogers Broadcasting will be accepting proposals until Feb 15, 2012. Submission materials can include a one-pager, pitch document, bible or demo. Please submit materials along with the release form, electronically to Jackie Samuels, Jackie.Samuels@rci.rogers.com using the title “Alberta Local Programming Initiative” in the subject line.
